a government where the citizens were unarmed and the government was so powerful it could kill people. it is not just for hunting. it is for personal protection from foreigners that might come in. it could be terrorists or our own government turning on us. we always think we are protected because we have the freedom but just like reagan and some of them have said, we are always one step away from losing those freedoms. that is one thing to be said. the other thing is that i believe the entertainment industry is a lot to blame in many ways. we have the violent video games, first person shooters, that desensitize the kids and adults. . host: that goes to the freedom of speech of the american constitution. how do you think congress should deal with the entertainment industry, video games, and the arguments that we will hear from supporters of the entertainment industry saying this might infringe on the first amendment? caller: there is a first amendment right but there is personal responsibility and a moral responsibility. all we are putting out there is sex and violence. the sex is a bl

to trim the size and scope of government, whether it was the bush tax cuts a decade ago or whether it was the debate over the debility ceiling just over a year ago is going to likely end up as an effort to expand the size and scope of government. that's something that can only happen in washington. >> eric: both of those guys make very good points. a lot of people are asking why would you say go over the fiscal cliff? i have a lot to lose if we go over the fiscal cliff. my taxes would go up. i'm heavily invested in the stock market. it will probably take a big hit. but in the long run, the only way to solve america's debt problem -- we have a debt problem. we have a very bad debt problem. we're on our way to $20 trillion in debt, maybe 25 in the next five to ten years. the only way to fix that is go over the fiscal cliff 'cause clearly democrats don't want to cut spending. they'll have to be forced into that and the only way that happens is hit the sequestration, the things that the fiscal cliff will bring of the that's why. i'll take the medicine, the pain now for a healthier econ
majority leader harry reid now saying that it appears that the government will miss the deadline for avoiding the fiscal cliff. so what will that mean, and how will america respond come january 1st? gregg: new developments in the investigation into the deadly connecticut school shooting. jenette sises have been asked to study the gunman's dna. what can they learn about it? gregg: severe weather alert. winter warnings in effect as a brutal storm is sweeping through the u.s. it brought massive amounts of snow and even tornados to parts of country and claimed at least 15 lives. illinois was no exception. major problems on the roads as snow and sleet pounded the area, forcing some businesses to remain closed. maria molina is keeping an eye on the storm from the extreme weather center. we're going to get the latest, top of the hour. >> new year's eve is fast approaching and for decade and decade the american people have watched the ball drop in times square. it is the countdown to midnight, the start of a new year. but this year, mr. president, the american people are waiting for the
. >> good morning, dave. >> dave: they will be fined if the government chooses $1.3 million a day for not going along with obama care. why? >> that's how the law is written. and this mandate is written so that if they don't provide abort fascia's that's what they're opposed to the in hha mandate. some opposed to abortions. hobby lobby don't want to pay for abortion pills cord under the hh mandate. they will be penalized again for what costs roughly a couple of dollars per person maybe a month in their nrch plan. $100 for each of the 13,000 employees they have. just not it not giving their employees access to for free at no cost and no co-pay abort faces. that's what's at issue here. this is a religious freedom issue. and a question of like the supreme court handled the citizens united do corporations also have if they have got free speech rights in the first amendment. why wouldn't they have the free exercise of religion rights that are also in fact, they start the first amendment as the religious -- i think it's a very important point to make that though hobby lobby has had a tou
of combination of gun control and mental health initiatives on behalf of the government. a lot of the silence up until now has been blamed on the nra's political power. it's estimated in your own race in 2010, the nra and affiliates spent $1.5 million to outst you. how powerful are they really? i heard ed rendell say they are a paper tiger. are they really that powerful? does the sandy hook shooting do anything to change that? >> no, they are not that powerful. look, we came within two percentage points of that race and it had nothing too do with the nra. the nra opposed me in every single race and i won every single one until the very last. my take on this is that americans very much want their liberties to be respected. but we are americans that come together in a community and if we want more senators, senator casey recently changed his position and that's the tragedy about connecticut it took that tragedy to have senators to do what's actually right. the nra is not a complete paper tiger, just a special interest group, and i believe that americans want to do what's right for the community. t
